Kinky Boots Comes to #TEAMKC 21/03/2019

[#TEAMKC DANCE & MUSICAL THEATRE NEWS]

 

Former IGNITE Musical Theatre graduate, now star of Kinky Boots The Musical, Damon Gould stopped by the college today to give our Dance, Musical Theatre and Acting learners an exclusive workshop! Beginning with an intense warm-up, Damon put them through their paces.

Part of Damon’s routine involved dancing in heels, which he does effortlessly and fabulously, and our learners got to have a go! The students did us proud, tackling this rather difficult challenge with grace and ease!

It was a proud moment for Lucy Clark, Musical Theatre tutor, who first taught Damon, to see him hold such a successful workshop with her current learners!

 

Damon had this to say about his time at #TEAMKC: “Training with Ignite Musical Theatre changed my life. With the teachers’ guidance and support, I was able to go on to train, with a fully funded scholarship to my dream musical theatre school.  Without their help, I truly believe I wouldn’t be where I am or the person I am today.”

Kidderminster College taught me a lot of valuable lessons not only in industry standard techniques, but in professionalism and confidence.  They gave me a place of belonging, being surrounded by people who live and breathe what I have so much passion for.  The memories I made there I will cherish forever, I owe the lecturers every bit of success I have.”

It just goes to show what some intense determination and hard work can do! We can’t wait to see Damon again and what he gets up to in the future!
